Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

Brooks needs to improve, but really "easiest job in the NFL?" Says who?

I guess you could post stats that show I'm Wrong. It really does not matter at this point because 1) we won 2) he was signed. I just hope he improves and it does not cost us a game while waiting.

Are you saying holding or punting is the easiest job in the league?

Or Madden, that way we can run Fake FG's like all game. Thats of course after we go for it in our own territory.

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

They drafted Brooks so as long as he didn't fall on his face he was going to get the job all along.

I'll cut him some slack though. He's talented. He'll be ok I think. He just had a bad game.

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

This is exhibit A why you don't draft an effing punter. While Brooks is learning on the job, our special teams suffer. Brooks is leading the NFL in sucking at punting, last in punting avg (36.8) and last in net (28.3). So we suffer through Frost and just as he's turned the corner we have to suffer through Brooks? Great.

if by frost turned the corner, you mean, he just gave up a safety as he let a ball that hit him in the hands bounce out of the endzone....

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

Here's the kick in the nuts. If this guy doesn't have a big turnaround and soon, he'll get cut, we will end up with a journeyman type (in all likelihood inferior to Frost), and we will have wasted a 6th round pick. Maybe this is why most teams don't draft punters.

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

Where was this support for Frost back in the preseason? Even when he was outkicking Brooks all we heard was Frost still needed to be cut.

Yes, he did give up a safety. He also averages 10 net yds more than Brooks and is the holder that Suisham prefers. Brooks may come around, I seem to recall a certain Chip Lohmiller who never really did...

Honestly, I'd MUCH rather have an argument about the punter than the qb.

You did not here that from me and I thought we should have kept Frost. Brooks will be OK its just fustrating when we had a decent punter and we let him go for some guy who is unproven.
